Project Description: Simulations for childhood assertion
Scenari-Kids is a purpose build online platform that contains a large range for video-produced streaming social scenarios for children to work through with peers in order to improve social and speaking confidences. It is a younger age bracket version of Scenari-Aid (www.scenariaid.com). This project will include using this platform to assess its embracement with the target audience and perceived benefits.
